The Easter Bells Of Feldkirch. 



Zealously and victoriously the ar- 
mies of the great Nepoleon were 
sweeping over Europe. No fort was 
strong enough to resist them; no 
number of men large enough to de- 
fend a city, at that time, when the 
French battered at its walls. 

On the, frontiers of Austria was a 
little town called Feldkirch. It had 
no more than three or four thousand 
people, mostly God fearing men. 
The great Nepoleon found Feldknch 
in his way as he advanced, and he 
gave an order to one of his generals 
to take it. just as a housewife would 
order a servant to kill a fowl for 
dinner. The general selected was 
Massena; and one beautiful Easter 
morning, as the people arose to go 
to the first Mass of the festival, thev 
saw General Massena's forces, num- 
bering 18,000 men, encamped on the 
heights above the town. The sun as 
it rose shone on long files of French 
muskets,— a sad though glittering 
sight to the people, who had been 
thinking only of their Risen Lord. 

Naturally, there was the greatest 
consternation. No one knew the best 
course to persue, so a hurried meet- 
ing of the town council was held. 
One thing all were agreed upon; that 
it was useless to oppose the over- 
whelming numbers of the enemy. 
.Then some one arose and suo-o-ested 
that a suitable person be sent to the 
French camp with a flag of truce and 
the keysof trie town, asking for some 
degree of mercy. — that at least the 
women, children, and old men might 
be spared, and a general sack, the 
awful accompaniment of war, averted. 

At this juncture, an old and rever- 
ed priest arose^ and all listened with 
close attention, for his counsels had 
always been loving and wise. '*Mv 
children," he said, "-this is Easter 
Day. Can not God, who rose from 
the dead, protect us in our distress? 
Shall our first act in this calamity be 
to forsake Him? We of ourselves 
can do nothing. What are we against 
that vast number awaiting the order 



to attack us? Let us go to the church 
as usual, and trust to God for the 
rest." 

At these brave and earnest words 
hope sprang anew in the breasts of 
the faithful, and the various sextons 
were ordered to ring all the bells of 
the town as joyfully as possible. 
Troops of people thronged the streets 
and entered the churches; and one 
would not have known, except for 
the menacing host upon the hill, that 
anything had interfered with the 
happiness of those who were rejoic- 
ing in the Resurrection. 

Arid so the joy-bells rang and rang 
and rang; and the French, hearing 
them, took word to their general that 
they were ringing because of the ar- 
rival of reinforcements; that the 
place had been relieved during the 
night by a large portion of the 
Austrian Army. The General be- 
lieving this, orclerd his troops to re- 
treat at once. 

Thus, While the bells of Feldkrich 
rang, the French army stole away; 
and the people fell again upon their 
Knees and gave thanks to God for 
their deliverance. 



HOLY WEEK. 



What is the last week of Lent 
called? 

It is called Holy Week and the 
Silent Week. 

In her liturgy the Church calls it the 
Great Week, because during its days 
the grandest events are commemorated 
and the greatest graces are given to us. 

The Church in this week seeks to re- 
mind us specially of the sufferings of 
Christ, by chanting in the Mass of Palm 
Sunday, and of Tuesday and Spy Wed- 
nesday, instead of the ordinary Gospel, 
the Passion or history of the sufferings 
and death of Jesus. 

Wnat clays particularly of Holy 
Week have a special meaning? 

Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, 
Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. 

Of what does Palm Sunday re- 
mind us? 

Palm Sunday is the day on which 
Jesus triumphantly entered the city 
of Jerusalem, when the people with 
palm branches in their hands came 
out to meet Him and to salute Him 
as the Son of David. 

What observances are held on this 
day? 

Palms are blessed and carried in a 
religious procession. 



APRIL, 10, 1900. 



The blessing of the palms proceeds Bautism, Confirmation, Extreme 



in the following manner: The choir 
sings the words of praise, '-Hosanna to 
the Son of David;" then follows a pray- 
er, then a lesson out of the Old Testa- 
ment concerning the promise of the 
miraculous manna; then is sung the 
Guspel describing the entry into Jerusa- 
lem, then a preface and several prayers 
invoking a blessing on the palms, which 
are at last sprinkled with holy water 
and incensed. The palms are then dis- 
tributed, and the procession begins. 

On the evenings of Spy Wednesday, 
Holy Thursday, and Guod Friday, Tene- 
br-93 is sung as an evening devotion, con- 
sisting of. psalms, les ons, and lamenta- 
tions having reference to the sufferings 
of Christ. These lamentations are the 
wailngs of the piophet Jeremias over 
the destruction of Jerusalem, and are 
intended to put us on our guard against 
the misery of sin and to impress us with 
the necessity of penance. 

During the Tenebiaa fifteen candles 
are kept burning on a triangular candle- 
stick, and at the end of each psalm one 
is : extinguished, except the last one, 
which is carried lighted behind the altar 
and again brought forth and replaced, 
still burnii g. in tiie triangle. 

'ITus is intended to show us that the 
ligut or uie Godhead in Jesus Christ, 
wniisl becoming apparently dimmer dur- 
ing ±iis sulfciiugs was never extinguish- 
es ai.d at Uie insurrection oniy burst 
for ill witn greater brilliancy. 

\\ hat events are commemorated 

on Holy Tnursday? 

1. Tne institution of the Blessed 
Sacrament of tne altar. 

2. The beginning of Cnrist's pas- 
sion in me Garden of Olives. 

In some countries it is customary on 
this day to place on the table for the 
hist tune in the season, the first green 
vegetables of spring, and on that ac- 
count it is known as Green Thursday. 

Wnat are tne Church observances 

of this day? 

1 Holy Mass. 

2. The blessing of the holy oils 
by the bishop. 

3. Tne uncovering of the altars. 

4. The wasniug of the feet. 
What takes place during Mass? 
Tne Churcn commemorates to day 

tiie institution of tne Blessed Eucha- 
rist, and as a sign of gladness the 
Gloria is sung at the Mass, and all 
the bells are rung during its recital 
by the priest. 

In each parish church but one Mass 
is celebrated, at which the other priests 
receive Communion, because at the 
Last Supper Christ alone changed bread 
and wine into His Body and Blood, and 
administered to His apostles. 

At the Mass two large Hosts are con- 
secrated, one of which is kept for Good 
Friday, and at the end of Mass, in a 
veiled chalice, is carried in procession 
to the repository prepared on one of the 
side altars. 

The organ and bells are now silent till 
the Gloria on Holy Saturday to indicate 
the deep grief of the Church at the suf 
l'erings and death of Christ. The signs 
required during the Offices are given by 
means of a wooden rattle. 

Why does the consecration of the 
holy oils take place to day? 

To-day, during Mass, the bishop 



Unction, and episcopal and other 
consecrations: for on this day Christ 
bv establishing the priesthood, made 
the apostles the dispensers of the 
sacraments. 

Why are the altars stripped after 
Mass? 

The altars are stripped to indicate 
our sorrow at the death of Jesus, and 
in sad memory of His exposure dur- 
ing the scourging and crucifixion; 
but more especially in memory of 
His humiliation and affliction, of 
which tiie prouhet says: ''There is 
no beauty in Him, nor comeliness" 
(Isaias liii. 2.)

Of what does the washing of the 
feet remind us? 

The washing of the feet of their 
inferiors performed by the Pope, the 
bisnops, and other superiors reminds 
us of the deeo humility of Jesus, 
Wno on this day, before instituting 
the Blessed Sacrament, washed the 
feet of His apostles, and bade them 
do the same in imitation of Him. 

What are the Cnurch observances 
of Good Friday? 

On Good Friday the Church, amid 
the deepest affliction, commemorates 
tne death and burial of Jesus. 

Because of this sorrow the services 
are carried on in black vestments, 
and Good Friday is held as no feast. 

! How does the service begin to-day? 
Tne priest and his ministers, when 
beginning the service, prostrate 
tnemselves at the foot of the altar. 

Why is this done? 

It is done in imitation of the de- 
basement of Our Lord, Who for our 
sake underweut the death on the 
cross, and also to give expression to 
our profound grief at His sufferings 
and death.
